Monday, May 1, 2017 / 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Dramatic economic growth helped lift 29 million Brazilians out of poverty between 2003 and 2014, and the income level of the poorest 40 percent of the population continues to rise. However, poverty and inequality have declined at a slower pace since a drop in commodity prices plunged the country into deep recession. Economic woes were compounded by a political crisis. Now, with political stability restored, what lies ahead for Brazil? Please join Ambassador Sergio Amaral and Finance Minister Henrique Meirelles to learn more about the progress Brazil has made.
